A Stunning Neighborhood

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in this neighborhood, with its stunning views of mountains.  Aren't they blessed?  We sure enjoyed walking through it with them.

My sister-in-law and I did an experiment where we (mostly she) joined in the boys' conversation, and then randomly left it, just to see if it would interrupt their flow.  At.  All.  It didn't.  :) They acknowledged the comments made as if we had been there all along, and kept going after we left, still as though we had never been there.  Points for continuity.

And I think they did notice us in a physical-space sort of way.

And the girls?  We giggled.  At how engrossed our twin husbands can be with each other.  Or at least with their topic.


  1. Rob just got a little dose of home. It looks like you had so much fun! My favorite photos was the one of the twins and the one of their wives. You two girls like similar too. : )

  2. We had fun looking at the photo of the twin brothers (I showed it to each family member). My youngest son exclaimed delightedly, "identical twins!" and we all decided the the twin we know is the one on the right side of the photo. Are we right?

    I agree with Barbara, you and your SIL have many traits in common which make you look alike too!

  3. You guessed right! I never notice that my sister-in-law and I look anything similar. She is an identical twin as well, so everyone else looks very different. :)

  4. I love love love the picture of you and Trina!! :)


Greetings, fellow climbers! Leave your marks on the steps--I'll be delighted to hear from you.
